Italian Sculptor Creates Incredible Metal Wire Sculptures

It is the sculpture indeed the place where he is able to combine his knowledge and his technical skillfulness in the field of metals

Sometimes the work of artists cannot be imagined by ordinary people in general. Armed with high imagination makes the artists have a unique way to create various objects to have high artistic value.

Uniquely, the statues were not made with wood or sculpture as usual. This artist makes sculptures from metal wires and the results are truly amazing and surely blow your mind!

Like this artist created, with his skill, talent, and high sense of art, Mattia Trotta who was born in Savona 24 January 1980, Italian sculptor, since 2013 he works in Valle Camonica, in the village of Bienno, province of Brescia.

Trotta started from a steel frame wrapped around a wire. One by one, tangled wires are compacted to fill the outside.

After finishing the iron frame, the artwork must go through the final process with acid to prevent corrosion and to extract the natural feel and color from the cable.

After the first cycle of technical studies always accompanied by his passion for musical experimentation, in 2002 he meets the world of plastic arts which he immediately recognizes and embraces as the only appropriate means to translate his personal research.

It is the sculpture indeed the place where he is able to combine his knowledge and his technical skillfulness in the field of metals with yearnings and tensions aimed at the existential understanding, searching for direction which in his works often translate into symbolic images with an intimate character.

Some of his works already adorn Italian parks and squares, one of these “Fratelli” commissioned by the Toscany region is installed in the park of Villa Fabbricotti in Florence.

Here are some of his extraordinary artworks below!

"He expresses himself by modeling shapes with intertwined metal wires, using a personal, innovative technique. Smith and weaver at the same time, Mattia molds shapes with steel, silver, aluminum, and bronze. Grace and power originate from his hands, in the act of giving form to the simple matter, through the use of a wire that visibly vibrates under our eyes.

His sculptures have no dimensional limits, and many of them already adorn various squares and parks in Italy. From a chaotic, primordial silence, the wire crashes, clumps and stratifies among the sculptor’s fingers, where the adventure of metamorphosis begins: “Every line has its reason to exist, the work of art is solid; nevertheless the wind flows through it and the air integrates with the volume, connecting the sculpture with the surrounding environment.” he says.

Loaded with expressively, the subjects are the result of a very slow, careful, industrious, and fine artisanal process, which takes care of every single detail. His modus operandi is figurative art: nature, animals and human beings represent the main inspiring source and are enhanced in their shapes and beauty."

“Thought, communication, feeling: all you need to link them is a wire. Rhythm and speed are given by my wire to the volumes in which I choose to enclose it and my art blends together lights and shadows, silences and chaos, sky and earth” ( Anna Serraiotto )

"The search for essentiality and the soul’s images captured through a figurative piece of work, which puts down its roots in the dream and in the subconscious, are necessary aspects to ensure that the interlocutor can enjoy them. The pursuit of anatomical perfection, as in classicism, embraces the expressionism, which combines the poetry of forms with the emotional tension of the surfaces. A modern piece of work that is far from being a serial product, as it is often demanded by the market, but it requires long periods of production and deep and real intimacy with the topics addressed. The gesture of the artist, imprinted in the material, marks the frequency of vibrations, resonant with the soul." ( Achille Pruna )

"In the wire, I see the perfect conductor of my creativity that will satisfy the communication needs, induce deep emotions and promulgate, between the lines, the thought. The eye is caught by the stroke, which is rarely found in sculpture, a palpable, nervous and frantic sign, that donates rhythm and speed to the volumes in which it is enclosed.

– It is the chaos, tamed – the frenzy of modern society, the background buzz of the inner life, the ongoing struggle between good and evil, lights and shadows harnessed and converted into works that evoke the state of being, at times creating archetypes to refer to, in order to emerge from the depths of the human condition.

To each line it is given reason to exist, the work is firm but the wind passes through it and the air becomes an integral part of the volume linking it to the environment." ( Mattia Trotta )
